unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house oversight and government reform, representative peter welch. sir, thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> good to be with you. >> john: right on. let me ask you just for starters, why does the debt ceiling exi

. a letter to president obama published an m.i.t. technology review a week ago was just as emphatic. it says, it is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late. end quote. european ngo, climate before them say climate change will zap the u.s. economy of over $400 billion annually by 2030. already they say it's stealing $1.2 trillion from the global economy each year and contributing to deaths of nearly 400,000 people. now, one hopeful sign here if you, chris, the cost of extreme disasters and catastrophes, natural or manmade, that went down last year. >> so one little piece of good news in the middle of all of that other concern. >> yes. >> it's a beautiful day here in new york. >> it is a beautiful day today. >> yeah. thank you so much, richard. >>> and that's going to wrap up this hour of "jansing and company." i'm chris jansing. thomas roberts is up next. >> good morning, everybody. topping our agenda, president obama meets the press. he's going to be holding his 37th solo news conference, the final news conference of his first term. just minutes
